Pagination or Media Count:
An investigation was conducted to establish the methods and procedures to collect pilot factors information and to obtain firsthand pilot opinions and judgments concerning the present control-display systems installed in helicopters. Four instrument instructor pilots were used as test subjects and a total of seven data gathering sorties were accomplished. The profiles flown represented typical helicopter instrument maneuvers. The subject pilot activity required in performance of the maneuver segments was designed to progress from simple tasks to complex tasks. Objective and subjective data were obtained through the use of video, audio, and oscillograph recording equipment.
